Set to take on the role of Bri­tish se­cret agent James Bond once more, OMEGA am­bas­sador Daniel Craig looks every inch the gen­tle­man that 007 is writ­ten to be. It is only ap­pro­pri­ate that the ac­tor play­ing such a leg­endary char­ac­ter gets to wear a leg­endary time­piece. Daniel Craig first wore an OMEGA on-screen in Casino Royale in 2006. As ac­cu­rately as he por­trays Bond, Daniel Craig is, in many ways, worlds apart from the char­ac­ter he plays. A grounded English gent with an ap­proach­able style and com­mit­ment to so­cial causes, OMEGA is proud to call Daniel Craig a friend and thrilled that he’s the face of the new Sea­mas­ter Diver 300M. He truly is the per­fect choice. Af­ter all, how many un­der­wa­ter ex­plor­ers can make a wet­suit look this stylish?

Since its first it­er­a­tion in 1993, the Sea­mas­ter Pro­fes­sional Diver 300M has en­joyed a ded­i­cated fol­low­ing. It was the time­piece that ig­nited the brand’s long-stand­ing partnership with James Bond. Now, as the partnership cel­e­brates its 25th year, a bold new col­lec­tion has ar­rived.

The OMEGA Sea­mas­ter is re­ceiv­ing a com­plete facelift for this land­mark col­lec­tion. There are 14 mod­els in the col­lec­tion, with six in stain­less steel and eight in a mix of stain­less steel and 18K gold. Sized at a larger 42mm, each Sea­mas­ter Diver is now fit­ted with a Master Chronome­ter Cal­i­bre 8800—in­stantly el­e­vat­ing the col­lec­tion to a higher level of pre­ci­sion, per­for­mance, and mag­netic re­sis­tance.

The div­ing bezel is now made from ce­ramic, with a div­ing scale in Cer­agoldtm or white enamel—for longer-last­ing white­ness and dura­bil­ity. Most no­tably, OMEGA has brought back the wavy pat­tern that was a pop­u­lar fea­ture of the orig­i­nal time­piece. The in­dices have been raised and filled with Lu­mi­nova, while the date win­dow has been moved to the six o’clock po­si­tion for bet­ter vis­i­bil­ity. The skele­ton hands— avail­able in rhodium-plated, 18K gold, or blued—have been subtly re­shaped, a de­tail that long-time fans will ap­pre­ci­ate.

The wave-pat­terned edge can also be found on the case­back, along with sap­phire crys­tal. Last, but not least, each model is pre­sented on a tra­di­tional metal bracelet or an in­te­grated black or blue rub­ber strap. while some of us may not be suave se­cret agents, hav­ing the OMEGA Sea­mas­ter Diver 300M on our wrist sure takes us feel one step closer to be­com­ing one.
